Looking to go on a brilliant bronze age adventure this half term?

Join us at Castleford Museum to travel back thousands of years to the Bronze Age!

Walk in the shoes of the first Castlefordians on a story trail around our awesome ancient artefacts. Discover the tools and tricks to survive in Bronze Age Castleford with the axes and arrowheads they left behind.

Once you’re safely back in the present, we’ve got lots of fantastic materials to make your own crafts inspired by the brilliant Bronze Age.

What will you take home to remember your journey by?

All materials are provided for free.

SEND families are welcome at all of our sessions but we are running this SEND session for those families who require a more relaxed atmosphere.

The session will be run with more sensory activities, more focus on independent learning, a lower light level and with a sensory tent and ear defenders available upon request.
